Broken Window

We had our window broken as well. Tried a local glass place, but because the window has two different radii (top to bottom, and side to side) they couldn't do anything for us. Ended up having to order a whole new window (frame and all) from Airstream. My dealer took the glass out of the replacement frame and installed it on the trailer. If anyone needs a frame for the curbside rear window of a 2003 25' Safari SS (sans window) I have one!

You COULD put a piece of Lexan in the frame, carrefully wrap it in, say, an old bedspread, and store it for if/when another window gets broken. If you get the Lexan that is "scratchproof" on both sides it should last virtually forever, and you will be able to get up and running in very short order. Also, the Lexan will flex, so it should fit in the frame with no problem.
